Paper Marbling with Cary Suneja, 11/3/18


Fee: $90/$80 members (all materials included)
Registration: Registration is closed. For info on future sessions, sign up for our e-list.

Marbling is the ancient art of "floating" paints on a water bath, then combing and raking them into intricate patterns. In this workshop, you will learn how to apply acrylic paints to a water bath and create beautiful one-of-a-kind papers. You will go home with 12 or more of your own papers for use in your next project, from bookbinding to card making to paper crafting. Wear your "painting clothes," and consider bringing an apron.

Ceramic Planters with Katheryn Corbin

A Ceramics Workshop with Katheryn Corbin

Fee: $85/ $75 members (all materials included)
Registration: Registration is closed. You may be interested in Make a Planter for Spring Flowers: A Ceramics Workshop with Katheryn Corbin, Wednesday, March 6, 2019.

Make a ceramic planter for Valentine’s Day using coil building techniques, red clay slip, and surface decoration. Draw your inspiration from Lynden’s acres or mementos brought from home. Planters will be fired at Lynden and ready for pick-up by Valentine’s Day, or you can join our Spring Sawdust Firing for a subtle, shining finish. Beginners welcome.

Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for studio work as well as the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting.

About Katheryn Corbin
Katheryn Corbin is a painter, potter, and figure sculptor. Pots and figures have both been a part of Corbin's studio practice and teaching. Drawing and painting are important elements in each discipline, and her clay pieces are informed by the complementary processes of working with clay as vessel and as figure. Corbin is interested in historical developments in clay and variations across cultures, and she often explores different firing techniques and glaze surfaces. She has taught at all levels from elementary school through adult at the Evanston Arts Center in Evanston, IL; the Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, WI; the Milwaukee Art Museum; the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design; and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

February 3, 2019 - 12:30pm - 2:30pm

Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Younger children should be accompanied by an adult.

The mind layers images, and when we create layered images in the studio, they can evoke and uncover the complexity of the unconscious. Explore the open-ended possibilities of the gel plate, and build images using print and collage. We'll cover basic gel plate techniques using monoprint, collage, and drawing in a fluid, no-boundaries process.

February 6, 2019 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

About The Lost Girls of Paris

1946, Manhattan

Grace Healey is rebuilding her life after losing her husband during the war. One morning while passing through Grand Central Terminal on her way to work, she finds an abandoned suitcase tucked beneath a bench. Unable to resist her own curiosity, Grace opens the suitcase, where she discovers a dozen photographs - each of a different woman. In a moment of impulse, Grace takes the photographs and quickly leaves the station.

Grace soon learns that the suitcase belonged to a woman named Eleanor Trigg, leader of a ring of female secret agents who were deployed out of London during the war. Twelve of these women were sent to Occupied Europe as couriers and radio operators to aid the resistance, but they never returned home, their fates a mystery. Setting out to learn the truth behind the women in the photographs, Grace finds herself drawn to a young mother turned agent named Marie, whose daring mission overseas reveals a remarkable story of friendship, valor and betrayal.

Vividly rendered and inspired by true events, New York Times bestselling author Pam Jenoff shines a light on the incredible heroics of the brave women of the war, and weaves a mesmerizing tale of courage, sisterhood and the great strength of women to survive in the hardest of circumstances.

About the Author

Pam Jenoff was born in Maryland and raised outside Philadelphia. She attended George Washington University in Washington, D.C., and Cambridge University in England. Upon receiving her master’s in history from Cambridge, she accepted an appointment as Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Army. The position provided a unique opportunity to witness and participate in operations at the most senior levels of government, including helping the families of the Pan Am Flight 103 victims secure their memorial at Arlington National Cemetery, observing recovery efforts at the site of the Oklahoma City bombing and attending ceremonies to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of World War II at sites such as Bastogne and Corregidor.

Following her work at the Pentagon, Pam moved to the State Department. In 1996 she was assigned to the U.S. Consulate in Krakow, Poland. It was during this period that Pam developed her expertise in Polish-Jewish relations and the Holocaust. Working on matters such as preservation of Auschwitz and the restitution of Jewish property in Poland, Pam developed close relations with the surviving Jewish community.

Pam left the Foreign Service in 1998 to attend law school and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania. She worked for several years as a labor and employment attorney both at a firm and in-house in Philadelphia and now teaches law school at Rutgers.

Pam is the author of The Kommandant's Girl, which was an international bestseller and nominated for a Quill award, as well as The Winter Guest, The Diplomat's Wife, The Ambassador’s Daughter, Almost Home, A Hidden Affair and The Things We Cherished. She also authored a short story in the anthology Grand Central: Original Postwar Stories of Love and Reunion. She lives outside Philadelphia with her husband and three children.

A Workshop with Leslie Perrino

Fused Silver Loop Earrings with Leslie Perrino, Feb. 11, 2018

Fee: $90/ $80 members (all materials included)
Registration: Registration is closed. For info on future sessions, sign up for our email newsletter.

Fusing is an ancient technique used to permanently connect precious metals, in this case, fine (pure) silver wire. Cleaner, faster, and less toxic than soldering, fusing involves the use of a hand torch. Leslie Perrino will show you how to fuse fine silver wire into loops that can then be made into earrings complete with earwires. Once you master the techniques, you will have time to make more earrings. No experience required, this workshop is suitable for complete beginners or those looking to expand their jewelry-making skills. All materials and tools supplied. You are welcome to bring beads to add to your earrings.

About Leslie Perrino

Leslie Perrino is an artist and "art evangelist" who loves to share the power of art and creativity with people, particularly in her beloved areas of metals and enameling. Her artwork is a quirky mix of traditional and found objects, most recently combining computer/electrical components with enamels. She is a charismatic and effective teacher who encourages skill building and exploration of the medium.
